Fishing on the Argo was amazing. Capt. Craig and staff make sure everyone is taken care of whether a seasoned angler or novice. Everyone is made welcome. Capt. Craig goes the extra mile to make sure the boat catches fish and has a great time. Once docked, your catch is cleaned and bagged, ready to go. I fly out from Michigan to fish on the Argo. You won't be disappointed.

I’ll tell you this, this was the most engaging, knowledgeable, fun crew I have ever fished with. I have chartered boats for salt water fishing more than 20 times and I think this was the best. Captain Craig and Jay were awesome and we killed it!

We could not have asked for a better day or Captain, thanks to Craig and his patience and knowledge my partner had a great 50th birthday morning fishing in San Francisco Bay. The boat, Captain, fishing were all excellent and although just two of us Craig still went out and made the birthday treat perfect. We had a good variety of catch and Craig was very knowledgeable about the fishing and the area which added to the fantastic experience. It was very much value for money and we had an amazing time - thank you.

Capt Craig is a great host on his vessel Argo. He is very accommodating and very friendly. His deckhand was also very friendly and helpful. Both wanted to ensure that your fishing experience was one of a kind and they both delivered.

Highly recommended, very professional, very personable.

Had a great day fishing. Almost had limits for all 5 of us (got 9 salmon total) and we're not that experienced. Captain Craig and Jeremy were very well organized and a good team. We really enjoyed our day out on the water and hope to go out again soon.

This was our second year out salmon fishing with Argo. Captain Craig does an amazing job getting you on the fish. Deckhand Andrew works the entire trip checking lines for weeds, checking bait, and netting fish, plus does an excellent job cleaning them when you get back to the dock. Both are friendly and super nice people. ARGO will always be our Number One choice for fishing while in San Francisco.

Captain Craig took my fiancé and I out on a half day charter at the last minute when the one we had booked with cancelled and recommended the Argo. We didn't know what to expect, but it turned into an amazing morning of catch and release striped bass fishing. We hooked the first one within minutes of reaching the spot, and rarely had a moment when we weren't reeling something in. We caught tons of sharks, a few flounders, and would have quickly reached our limit of striped bass if we weren't throwing them back. Captain Craig was very helpful and a wealth of knowledge, his boat was comfortable and pristine. Would definitely go fishing with him again if we find ourselves back in the bay area and would recommend it to anyone.

I spent a nice day at the bay catching some sharks and stingrays. Trolling gave only a few bites as captain Craig figured before we started. Captain was very friendly and helpfull and he gave us a nice package of good fishingknowledge for this area which is a bit different compared to Finland. Thank’s also for the Austrian guys for keeping company and sharing this fishingexperience.

Captain Craig and his deckhand Andrew were great. We had the opportunity to catch a lot of fish and pick what type of fish we wanted to go for. We caught striped bass, halibut, and rockfish. There was three of us and we each caught many fish each. He really knows exactly where to find each type of fish. Highly recommended!

My third trip on the Argo with Capt.Craig Hanson. Once again he worked hard to put us on the fish all morning. His first mate Andrew was fantastic. Very polite, enthusiastic and hard working. You can not ask for a better crew. Firsttimers to experienced anglers have a great time on the boat. Call a head to make sure you get the type of trip you want..
